I’m thankful that speaking up hasn’t caused me to lose my job — I’m a stay-at-home mom currently, though — but it sadly does affect my credibility both in my personal life as well as my professional life (I’m a social worker, currently caring full-time for my teens with emotional challenges, but expecting to return to the workforce within a couple years). We have had an unfounded case with Children & Youth related to my support of those on the registry, especially since 2 of my children were sexually abused. That was painful and scary.
I still would far rather face what I deal with than the life-long ostrasizing that my registered friends and acquaintances face, which doesn’t make any of this acceptable.
